Well, you can't create the directory gcc-build because already exists
from the previous (static) gcc build.
The files into the directory gcc-build are useless (I think), because
you have to compile a dynamic gcc now, so
you can move the files to another partition or remove it, you only need
the gcc source (/usr/src/gcc-2.95.2),
then follow the book.

I hope understand your problem and sorry if you don't understand my
english, not my default language :)
